Do I Have an Addiction?

If you answer yes to any of these questions, you may be struggling:

  • Prioritizing these behaviors over other commitments?
  • Difficulty recognizing consequences due to perceived rewards?
  • Inability to keep up with commitments due to these behaviors?
  • Difficulty sticking to a decision to stop, driven by anxiety?
  • Reverting back to old behaviors and binging?

How Can Therapy Help Me Through Recovery?

The main goal of therapy is to help patients maintain well-being and develop skills to tackle challenges, including:

  • Recognizing and avoiding triggers.
  • Developing coping skills for stress and cravings.
  • Avoiding relapse and maintaining sobriety.
  • Rerouting the brain’s reward center away from these behaviors.

Should I Join a Support Group?

Group counseling is beneficial for those struggling. Patients share experiences, knowing others understand. We offer online substance education and treatment group sessions. Reach out to discuss if group therapy is right for you.

In one-on-one counseling, our counselors partner with you on your journey to sobriety. Feel free to discuss any topic important to your well-being, including regrets, emotions, dilemmas, and aspirations. We’ll work with you to set achievable goals for a healthy, sober, and happy life.
